The fishing was cold and proved to be a challenge but the Great Lakes Steelhead Co beads managed to persuade a few to hand. It was one of the coldest outings I have fished this winter a really tested our commitment. The evening snowmobiling was awesome. The trails were prime and there seemed to be a lot of deer traffic out along the countryside. The highlight was a stop in Brethren for a cold and delicious beverage. Sunday was spent pulling snow off the back roof, revealing the suspected water ingress culprit and redeployment of the electric heat tape. I will have to wait until spring or summer to finalize the fix but for now I'm confident I have it figured out. Til then I have a rather large storage bin on the counter to quench my mental demons and any unforeseen rapid thaws.
